Commencement Year 2010 - 3659.1 Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Business and Commerce

The Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Business and Commerce double degree program allows graduates to span both the commercial and scientific worlds in a way that single degree graduates cannot. It provides students with the capacity for critical analysis and independent thinking. The double degrees permit students to undertake multi-skilling, and offer diverse career paths providing high marketability in multiple areas of expertise. This double degree program equips its graduates with a qualification in science, combined with a good understanding of basic business issues, complemented by a high level of knowledge relevant to a specific business discipline as applied in a global environment. Graduates will have a solid grounding in a core science discipline such as Biological Science, Chemistry or Mathematics; alternatively, students can design their own academic program within the Bachelor of Science course structure, including a science Major. This qualification in science is combined with one of the following key programs from the Bachelor of Business and Commerce: Applied Finance; Global Operations and Supply Chain Management; Hospitality Management; Human Resource Development and Organisational Development; Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations; International Business; Management; Marketing; Sport Management. Graduates will be equipped to work as scientists, with a good understanding of business principles and practices. Alternatively, as Business and Commerce graduates they will be well-prepared to work in science-based industries and institutions.

Study Mode
